Guest rooms are unexpectedly modernized and comfortable though the hotel is of an antique appearance. Staff are friendly and helpful. Don't miss the guided heritage tours to know more about the history of the hotel and the local fishing village at Tai O. Food and service are fine at the hotel restaurant "Tai O Lookout" located at the rooftop.

My girlfriend brought me here for my birthday and we stayed the weekend. In terms of logistics getting to Tai O, I don't go through all the details as you can find directions elsewhere but if you're going via the bus route, make sure to start your day early as the queues can get quite long with daytrippers and families....

It is nice to see the police station turns into a hotel, this helps to save such a historical place. As someone just pass by , the view is nice , perfect for seeing the sunset. Yet the public area is really small and hence always crowd with tourist. Not much to see if you are expecting detailed display on... More

We chose this hotel for our 27th anniversary & stayed for 2 night. Surprised us with the good stanard of this hotel. Staff are very nice, location is very good, right next to the sea & nice sunset. This 9-rooms hotel is very quiet & nicely decorated. We had a suite on the ground floor which is very nice &... More

Whether you live in Hong Kong or travel to Hong Kong, it is worth considering 2 nights (1 night is adequate if you are spending 2 full day before and after) at this hotel in Tai O. It was a place to slow down and embrace the beauty of a small fishing village. Join the hotel tour which gives a... More

We brought our family of 4 to this remote corner of Hong Kong for a weekend getaway. For overseas travellers who don't know Hong Kong as well. Getting there requires a bit of planning. You can either (1) take ferry from Central to Mui Wo, then taxi or bus to Tai O, and either walk for 15 minutes or catch... More

Tai O Heritage Hotel was one of the highlights on our trip. We had visited the big buddha during the day so we got a #11 bus from the bus station next to the gondola terminal which took us to Tai town centre for about HK$11 on our octopus card. I would recommend walking to one of the boat services... More

We stayed for one night in May in one of the rooms on the ground floor. The hotel location is remote and requires a 15 min. walk from the local bus terminus/ferry pier, through the local town. The room furnishings are cozy though a bit worn. The bathroom is a standard disabled-toilet set up (with tiny sink and no bathroom... More

This is a unique hotel, in a unique location - but there are draw-backs. First the positives; the 2km walk from the drop-off point to the hotel through Tai O village is one of the highlights of the trip, and is an experience in itself. It is not a picture-postcard charming village in the way that old Tuscan villages are... More

I like the concept of the hotel. It is a heritage hotel. They transformed a police station into a nice quiet fancy hotel. The building was beautiful! With great view of the water and mountain. We hiked from Discovery Bay to Mui Woo, then took 40 mins bus to Tai O. Walk another 20 mins to the hotel. You certainly... More
